LIAM 013 – A Positive Attitude Will Unlock Many of Life’s Doors

In this episode, I talk about how your attitude is the key to success in every area of life–professional, personal, and social. Your attitude, how you show up and the energy you bring to every situation, will open or close doors of opportunities. A positive attitude will not, necessarily, enable you to do everything, but it will help you do everything better. Be sure, every day, in every situation, to choose a useful attitude.

Quotes from the show:

Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude. – Zig Ziglar

Your I CAN is more important that your IQ – Robin S. Sharma

A positive mental attitude will not let you do everything, but it will let you do everything better! – Zig Ziglar
